This episode I welcome back Austin resident Sonia Van Meter, who was selected as one of the 100 finalists chosen for the Mars One mission – the one-way ticket to the Red Planet.
Sonia talks about getting chosen, dealing with many media appearances, and responding to the naysayers.
Also we talk about Andy Weir’s book and the subsequent Hollywood movie ‘The Martian’. But, Sonia really wants to go to Mars – and stay there.
Listen now to this great episode. Also, look back to Episode 12 if you want to hear the first time we visited.
